Dubai is a dynamic and thriving city that shows great growth potential. Building on their reputation for introducing revolutionary cruise experiences, they are excited to provide a different cruise holiday than traditionally offered in this region. Royal Caribbean continues to attract holidaymakers internationally and they are thrilled to offer new and exciting choices for their guests – combining distinct onboard amenities with compelling itineraries including the Arabian Gulf’s most popular destinations.
Brilliance of the Seas has a sleek profile and features vast expanses of open space, mirrored surfaces and glass panelling – nearly three acres of exterior glass. The open Centrum with ten-deck high windows and ocean-facing glass elevators offer guests breathtaking vistas of the passing landscape and sea. Among the ship’s unique features is a pair of ultra-high-tech, self-levelling pool tables in the Bombay Billiards Club.
For Royal Caribbean’s typically active guests, the recreational amenities include a rock-climbing wall, jogging track, basketball and volleyball court, golf simulator and nine-hole miniature golf course, and a large gym with treadmills facing the sea.
Five dining venues allow guests to enjoy Chops Grille steakhouse, Portofino Italian restaurant, Minstrel main dining room, or the casual Windjammer Café and Seaview Café. Freshly-brewed coffee, cappuccino or pastries can be found in Latté-tudes coffee bar.
Continuing its legacy of creating revolutionary holiday experiences, Royal Caribbean International’s recently launched Oasis of the Seas is the largest, most revolutionary cruise ship in the world. An architectural marvel at sea, the ship spans 16 decks, carries 5,400 guests, and features 2,700 staterooms, as well as seven unique neighbourhoods that provide holidaymakers with a multitude of experiences and environments to suit their moods. The six announced neighbourhoods include Central Park, a lush, expansive, open-sky space, lined with restaurants and boutiques, accented by grass, trees and seasonal flora; Boardwalk, a breathtaking seaside-inspired entertainment environment for families, featuring the AquaTheater, the first amphitheatre and deepest freshwater pool at sea; and an enhanced Royal Promenade, twice as wide as those on the Freedom- and Voyager-class ships and with a new mezzanine level overlooking the boulevard of restaurants, bars and lounges, and shops.
Royal Caribbean International is a global cruise brand with 21 ships currently in service and one under construction. The line also offers unique cruise tour land packages in Alaska, Canada, Dubai, Europe, and Australia and New Zealand.
